Otome Visual Novel Releases of April 2015

It’s been a year since I first started the Monthly Releases series of posts… Can’t believe how quickly time has passed! Sadly, outside of this, there’s nothing truly notable about April 2015. It’s such an obvious dump month that I feel sorry for it! Fandiscs, sequels, ports, remakes… the only game that is a truly new release is Photograph Journey ~Koi Suru Ryokou Shizuoka-hen & Nagasaki-hen~. Good timing, in a way, since I’m very busy with my studies this month and could use the mid-April holidays to catch up on the otome games that have been stuck in my backlog for ages!

Otome Visual Novel Releases of October 2014

New games:

~ Nekketsu Inou Bukatsu-tan Trigger Kiss [2-10-2014]
~ Prince Pia♥Carrot [PSP version] [23-10-2014]
~ Gakuen K -Wonderful School Days- [30-10-2014]
~ Taishou Kitan ~Kotonoha Sakura~ [30-10-2014]
~ Photograph Journey ~Koi Suru Ryokou Aichi-hen & Kyoto-hen~ [31-10-2014]
~ Sachi no Tenbin [R18+] [31-10-2014]

Ports/Remakes/Re-releases:

~ Amnesia Later x Crowd V Edition (PSP  PSV) [Link] [16-10-2014]

Wow, we have a big month! The taint on Great October that is yet another Amnesia cash-grab can be overlooked thanks to six NEW titles that are scheduled for release! The highly-anticipated Prince Pia♥Carrot’s PSP version will be released this month, in what I suspect to be a budget edition of some kind because of the PC version’s steep price. Another much looked forward to title is Sachi no Tenbin, which is Operetta Due’s second adult otome game title after their immensely successful debut work, Koezaru wa Akai Hana. Penny-pinching players will appreciate its low price, as Operetta factored in affordability. Fans of the anime K may be pleased to know that an otome game featuring its male characters will be released this month, appropriately named Gakuen K -Wonderful School Days-.

QuinRose will be releasing a sequel of Taishou Kitan, named Kotonoha Sakura. Nekketsu Inou Bukatsu-tan Trigger Kiss will be utilising the touch aspect of the PlayStation Vita- namely, the ability to “kiss” the love interests. Frankly, gimmicks like that mean jack to me, but for some, this will undoubtedly be a fun feature to compliment the bright, colourful, action-centric title. Famitsuu has given it a silver rating (to explain, Famitsuu, to the best of my understanding, rarely give otome games coverage, let alone good ratings), so perhaps there’s a lot more here than the surface suggests? Finally, we have Photograph Journey ~Koi Suru Ryokou Aichi-hen & Kyoto-hen~, which is the second game in the Photograph Journey series, featuring Tange Yukari from Aichi-ken and Kujou Shizuki from Kyoto.

Otome Visual Novel Releases of July 2014

After a quiet month that was June, July is going back to the “4-games-a-month” trend with the following titles set for release:

~ Soukai Buccaneers! (17-7-2014) (EDIT 28/7/2014: According to the countdown voices, it’s actually “Soukai”, not “Sayaka”.)
~ RE:VICE[D] (24-7-2014)
~ Majo’ou (31-7-2014)
~ Enkeltbillet (31-7-2014)

Not a bad month at all to be an otome gamer! I feel as though every month has an example of a game that looks “lacking” or just otherwise a useless remake/spin-off/sequel/side story/whatever other weak excuse to milk dat ca$h cow. To name examples documented in my blog, for April we had Houkago Colorful*Step, for May, Amnesia World and Heart no Kuni no Alice ~Wonderful Twin World~ and for June, Black Code. However, this month, the rest of the games are somewhat different (with the exception of Majo’ou, plot-wise) to the usual paint-by-numbers crap that make me facepalm my forehead into a concave imprint of my hand.

Majo’ou, though it sounds uninspired, at least has a premise that isn’t mind-numbingly stupid and its protagonist isn’t a “not-prettified” walking, talking doormat. Using demon kings and the demon world is certainly nothing new, but I think RE:VICE[D] looks to be handling it interestingly. It could go either way with Soukai Buccaneers- is the untapped “pirate theme” a gimmick, or will Petit Reve handle it well and create something worthwhile? However it goes, at least they TRIED an original idea. Enkeltbillet doesn’t need magic, high school, “literary adaptations” (read: base the content very loosely from where it originally came; morphing existing figures into moe tropes and only maintaining the aesthetic of the “borrowed” work to be able to stamp on a gimmicky label) or compose their cast of two-dimensional, provenly-successful stock characters to make their simple premise sound “more interesting”.
